- The Annual Danyliw Research Seminar on Contemporary Ukraine is the Chair's marquee annual event and is dedicated to provide a unique forum for researchers from Canada, Ukraine and elsewhere open to all social science and humanities research topics touching on Ukraine. The Seminar is made possible by the commitment of the Wolodymyr George Danyliw Foundation.
- Since 2009, the Annual International Social Science School in Ukraine is held for an intensive week in early July with an international group of doctoral students and faculty members converging to a specific town in Ukraine to hear and discuss presentations on ongoing research on a critical theme.
- Since the beginning of the unfolding events in Ukraine related to Euromaidan in November 2013 and its aftermaths, the Chair has sought to raise critical awareness and encourage ongoing debates on the current situation in Ukraine through different roundtables and public lectures.
- Since 1985, the Ivan Franko Memorial Annual Lecture, co-sponsored by the Ottawa chapter of the Ukrainian Canadian Professional and Business Association (UCPBA), has helped to raise the profile of Ukrainian studies, and raise awareness of Ukrainian matters in Canada's capital by bringing high-profile scholars to discuss topics of importance for contemporary Ukraine.
